Why you won't be seeing any new Little Britain

  • 05/12/2017

It's been 10 years since hit UK TV comedy show Little Britain officially finished, but don't count on seeing a reboot any time soon.

Actor and show creator Matt Lucas admits that now a show like Little Britain would be a hard sell to a TV audience.

He spoke to Three's The Project about why he thinks that he couldn't return to playing some of the characters he portrayed on the show.

"I think times have changed and I think we've become more conservative in some ways and more liberal in others," he said.

"It's about 15 years old Little Britain. When you view it now it seems odd that we would play a transvestite character or that we'd play characters of other races, it feels like something you might do then but no I don't think I'd do it now."
